xgboost for 64-bit Windows

Hi,

Currently xgboost is only supported on Linux platform.

Please add support for 64-bit Windows platform.

I try installing xgboost from the anaconda channel after installing Intel Python distribution, but unfortunately that doesn't work also as there are dependencies that's not met.

What I would like to request for is a Intel optimized binary distribution of xgboost, say using AVX instructions or the likes, to increase performance, without using a GPU. I understand this requires changes to the xgboost code base, than the currently available GPU code base. So yes I understand this is a big ask.

 

Thank you.

WJC

+1. As of April 2020, it is only available for Linux, but still not Windows: https://anaconda.org/intel/xgboost
